    Is Brady in the Parade?

  2. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    I hope whatever Brady decides to do, he don’t wait until the last possible moment. True, the longer he waits the more free publicity he gets for himself, but the less time it gives us to find his replacement.
    Of course, I hope he returns, but if he does not, we will need a veteran QB.
    Derek Carr would be ok, and maybe Andy Dalton ?

  3. HC Grover Says:

    Chad Henne

    This is a loser fan base site !! It’s time for the bucs to develop their own quarterback and if yall going to be scared about developing a quarterback? Than shut up and stop bashing Jamies or any other quarterback the bucs drafted and start bashing the organization because it’s their fault for bringing in coaches that can’t develop a quarterback. They drafted Kyle Trask in the second round and scared to see what he has . Or BA really can’t develop a quarterback and he’s just trying to buy superbowls without coaching!! I like BA but he ain’t no quarterback guru or the best coach the bucs ever had !! And plus Trask lead the NCAA in every quarterback stat in 2020 playing in the SEC!! No excuses!!

  5. crazybucs_CL Says:

    Correct 100%.
    BA is done, I’m not sure when he was something…if he ever was.

  6. Biff Barker Says:

    Oneilbuc – The Bucs over drafted both JW and Freeman. Might as well throw in Dilfer too! Each crowned as the savior of Buc fans despair.
    Problem was we fans bought the hype and expected more. Problem was not as much poor coaching, they all were a bit weak upstairs in terms of understanding coverage.

  7. Winny Testaverde Says:

    OneLilBuc…the first person to actually receive a negative score on the Wonderlic test…is celebrating The GOAT being all but a goner. Good for him. One of the toughest things to do on the planet is play QB in the NFL…with about 5-10 really good ones out there. “Developing” one is easier said than done.

  8. Cobraboy Says:

    I agree with the Sage.

    1) The Bucs lost to a better team in LA, just like last season when the ‘Skins, Saints, Pack, and Chefs lost to a letter team.

    2) The Glazers got a taste of relevancy and will NOT go without a franchise QB again.

    3) The roster is stacked. Even with a few player losses, this team will compete again…IF they have a solid QB.

    4) To think this organization and senior football managers have not considered every possibility with a plan to address each is absurd.

    Unlike the casuals here (lookin’ at you, oneil & crazy), I couldn’t care less where that QB comes from.

    One departure with the Joes & Sage: I would prefer to have Russell Wilson in Pewter, than Carr…although I have always liked Carr. But my #1 choice is to have one more season with Brady under center.

  9. Kev@Inverness Says:

    Wish I had a dollar for every time Oneilbuc said ‘develop a QB’ or Jameis. I’d be a rich mo fo!

  10. JimbobBucsFan Says:

    I find it beyond comprehension that local analysts would not have a feel for if the Buccaneer brain trust was not competent enough to have some sort of contingency planning in place even after they signed Tom Brady. I realize that the Glazers and Jason Licht hold many thing close to the vest. So unless you all are mind readers you can’t know for certain. On the other hand the NFL is said to stand for “not for long”. I just don’t see the the franchise being caught by surprise. They have to take every thing as being year by year if not month by month or day by day.

    [That is the exact point Joe made. If the Bucs didn’t have a backup plan when they signed a 43-year old quarterback that is on them. Seems difficult to believe they wouldn’t. — Joe]

  11. Alanbucsfan Says:

    Higbee would’ve been wide open because David was just standing there with his hands on his hips-
    The Bucs D was not prepared for this situation-and I surmise that since nobody during this discussion brought up the fact that Bowles and Leftwich were going on interviews last week, then it’s considered a non-factor.
    Well, when management is focused on outside interests, the staff tends to lose focus and the Bucs were not focused on key plays in this game.

  12. JimbobBucsFan Says:

    This Bucs fan (and many more!) will keep the faith, Sage. Love all you guys! Go Bucs!

  13. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    Hell Yes I would rather have Russell Wilson here than Derek Carr.
    But the price to get him will be very very steep!
